The VHF handheld radio model that has been used by the ARISS program to connect students worldwide with astronauts on board the International Space Station (ISS) for over 16 years has given an error message and is unusable at this time. While the ARISS technical team evaluates the best path to restore operation from the Columbus module, ARISS contacts will be supported using the Kenwood radio in the Russian Service Module. During this period, the packet digipeater will be unavailable.
A telebridge contact via IK1SLD with students at Venta School,Carp, Ontario, Canada is scheduled for 2016-05-30 19:00 UTC

Current discussions between the ARISS team and NASA suggest the possibility of voice contacts with the International Space Station (ISS) during Saturday’s ARRL Field Day activities this coming weekend.
The Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS http://ariss.rac.ca/) program hopes an Amateur Radio digital TV system will be up and running aboard the International Space Station by later this year. A project initiated by AMSAT-Italy http://www.amsat.it/, HamTV would provide one-way video and audio from the ISS to complement the FM radio voice link used for ARISS school group radio contacts.
